  1. Human T-lymphotropic virus type I in Japan.

    Article - En anglais

    Adult T-cell leukaemia (ATL) was first reported in Japan, where it has a high incidence in the southwest region.

    The retrovirus human T-lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) is the cause of ATL; and in ATL-endemic areas, the rate of carriage of antibodies to HTLV-I is high.

    A definite diagnosis of ATL is based on the presence of HTLV-I proviral DNA in the tumour-cell DNA.

    ATL cells originate from the CD4 subset of peripheral T cells.

    ATL shows diverse clinical features but can be divided into four subtypes-acute, chronic, smouldering, and lymphoma type.

    It is resistant to chemotherapy, and the acute and lymphoma types have a poor prognosis.

    Familial occurrence of ATL is common.

    HTLV-I infection is caused by transmission of live infected lymphocytes from mother to child, from man to woman, or by transfusion.
